Despite Majority Won At Moldovan Polls President Cannot Be Elected

Posted by Info on 29/11/2010

In last Sunday’s elections a majority vote won by the parties belonging to the Alliance for European Integration has proved not enough to elect the president. Like in the previous election the majority will have to come to terms with the opposition party of communists.

After 95.4 percent of votes were counted, the Moldovan Communist party leads in the election with 40.5 percent of votes in its support. It is followed by the Liberal Democratic Party which collected 28.7 percent of votes, the Democratic Party with 12.9 percent of votes and the Liberal party which collected 9.3 percent of votes, the Central Election Commission said.

The rest of the parties which contested parliamentary seats failed to pass the necessary four-percent election barrier. The votes won by these parties will be equally divided between the winners.
